Cabrera left Tuesday's game in the seventh inning due to dehydration, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports. It's good news that Cabrera didn't leave with something more serious, but he should nonetheless be considered day-to-day in advance of Wednesday's game. J.B. Shuck, who replaced Cabrera on Tuesday, would be an option to start in Cabrera's place if he is still under the weather.
Cabrera was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Tigers in the seventh inning, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. It seems Cabrera may have been injured on his groundout to second base in the top of the seventh, although it wasn't obvious when he got hurt or what part of his body was ailing. J.B. Shuck entered the game in center, pushing Adam Eaton to right field and Avisail Garcia to left.
Cabrera (illness) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners. A case of the flu kept Cabrera out of the lineup the past two nights, but he'll draw back in for Saturday's matchup against Seattle lefty Ariel Miranda. Cabrera, who has crushed left-handed pitching this season to the tune of a .345 average and .895 OPS, will bat third in the lineup.
Cabrera was left out of the lineup Thursday due to a case of the flu, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Initially, it appeared that the veteran was merely getting the day off for Thursday's matchup with Seattle. However, manager Robin Ventura told reporters during some media availability prior to the game that Cabrera was dealing with the flu. Cabrera will miss Thursday's game and if he's out again Friday, Avisail Garcia could take over again in left field.
Cabrera is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners. Cabrera will get a rare day off, as he hasn't sat since an injury forced him out of the lineup July 3. In his absence, the White Sox will go with an outfield alignment of Avisail Garcia in left, J.B. Shuck in center, and Adam Eaton in right against lefty James Paxton.
